Gold Coast Homeowners losing their homes

As many as 35 houseowners face having their homes sold against their will as they continue to fail to pay their council rates.

“If overdue rates have remained unpaid for at least three years council can, by resolution, place the subject land to public auction in order to recover the overdue rates,” a council report said.

Currently, the 35 home owners have an accrued debt of just under half a million, with a further 81 properties owing $1.5M in council rates.
